President John Dramani Mahama has suspended campaign to mourn the sudden demise of former Vice President Alhaji Aliu Mahama.
The former Vice President passed on at the Korlu-Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra on Friday, after a short illness.
The President says he was returning to Accra from the Brong Ahafo Region, where he has been campaigning for the past five days.
“This is unfortunate and I am suspending my campaign now to return to Accra and see how this sad news will be handled. I offered him all the support as a younger brother…this is very unfortunate,” the President sorrowfully told Ghana television.
